The Organization of Higher Education: Managing Colleges for a New Era

Colleges and universities are very best understood as networks of departments working together to meet a mission of education, innovation, and community partnership. To raised have in mind how these large and complex institutions function, scholars can apply organizational and strategic planning concepts made familiar by business management. This book follows that model and explores the brand new and emerging ways through which organizational theories address major recent concerns in higher education. The contributors to this volume are both influenced and inspired by the pioneering work of Marvin Peterson and his four-decade career researching higher education organization. Comprising a serious reexamination of the sphere, the essays review past and current thinking, address the sphere’s core theoretical traditions, and pursue exciting new lines of inquiry, including the organizational dynamics of diversity and social movement organizations. Ideal for courses in administration and theory, this book reinvigorates the study of higher education as a company and encourages scholars to rediscover the price of organizational principles in all areas of higher education research.
